AMH Internal Medicine Referral Center
Internal medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, management, and non-surgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases. At Animal Medical Hospital and 24 Hour Urgent Care, our combination of talented veterinarians and top medical technology allows us to effectively diagnose and treat your pet.
Bradley Bishop, DVM, DACVIM and Shannon Flood, DVM, DACVIM, are available to oversee internal medicine cases and advise our associate staff when necessary. The experience and ability of our staff, and their commitment and rigorous training, allows them to keep pace with the latest medical advances. We evaluate each pet's problem individually and thoroughly and formulate a plan, with your input, that will enable us to diagnose your pet and then develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Our veterinarians are trained to diagnose and treat internal medicine cases involving disorders that affect the following systems:
- Endocrine/hormonal (such as diabetes, Cushing's and Addison's)
- Immune system
- and more!
Some of the tools our staff uses to diagnose these disorders include:
- Digital x-ray
- GI tract endoscopy
- Advanced blood testing
Some of the procedures our staff uses to diagnose these internal medicine cases include:
- Endoscopically-guided biopsies
- Ultrasound-guided needle aspirates
- Bone marrow aspirates and biopsies
- Feeding tube placement
- Critical care monitoring
How can I make an appointment?
Internal Medicine appointments are by referral only. If your pet would benefit from an appointment with our internist, please speak with your primary veterinarian about sending over a referral. All referrals should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax (704) 358-3564.
What do I need to bring for my 1st appointment?
The internist will need the last 2 years’ worth of medical history from your primary veterinarian. If your pet is on any medications or supplements please bring a list of the medication, when your pet receives it and how often.
How do I get in contact with my internist?
If you have follow-up questions or would like to refill a medication that your internist prescribed, please email email@example.com. The internal team will check this email throughout the day and will get back to you as quickly as possible.
